I went to Gander Mountain to pickup something from the gunsmith( a Win Defender that was double feeding) and saw an M2 brand new with 5 rd magazine and pistol grip w/ shoulder stock.

It looks like the one the military is using, I could be wrong. Anyways after buying a Nova from them and being extremely satisfied I always liked the idea of a semi auto shotgun and this will be my first. Since I don't bird hunt that often anyways I liked the way it felt and looked (very solid, sturdy).

Are they reputable?
What is the receiver material?
Does this gun have a high round count life? Such as the Super Black Eagle?

I own a benelli Nova, Remington 870 Exp SupMag, a winchester 1300 Defender, and a Mossberg 590, and my experience with shotguns ends there.

The price was $1099, and I would plan to put it in layaway. Is this reasonable?

Isn't there an M3 also whats the difference? Five rds is fine but if I wanted can I extend the magazine?

I appreciate your opinions and experience!

I have an M2 field gun, but they also make an M2 tactical. I've got nothing but good things to say about my M2, and Benelli products in general. It feeds the bulk Wally World ammo (Federal and Winchester anyway) without any issues. I don't think you'll be able to wear it out. The military uses the M4, which is gas operated vs inertia driven. I'm told the inertia driven ones can be sensitive to the weight of a lot of addons such as lights, optics, etc, but I have no direct experience with that. My M2 is stock.

The reciever is anodized alluminum, and the barrel is steel. Mag extensions are available if you look around some. I paid less than $1100 for mine, but for the tactical version, it may be a reasonable price. The M3 is an auto/pump hybrid. You can select if you want a pump gun or an auto, and switch back and forth between modes. I suggest shopping around some, or maybe going to the benelli forums and asking there if the price is reasonable. My gut feel says it is.

Is it new? Thats a good deal for a new M2 Benelli. What gauge is it? Before the M1-S90 went out of production, most of the M2's I saw were in 20 GA.
